The newly elected Actors’ Guild of Nigeria President Fiberesima Ibinabo has released a statement on the death of Nollywood veteran actor Peter Eneh who passed away on Thursday, November 15, 2012, days after one of his legs was amputated.
‘It was with disbelief I received the sad news of the death of Uncle Pete Eneh. Honestly, I am still finding it extremely difficult to come to terms with his death. Well, we are mere mortals. When fate summons, we mere mortals must obey’ Fiberesima wrote.
‘I believe Uncle Pete Eneh has achieved his aspiration on earth. Also, I believe he is happy where he is now. A good man he was; amiable, loving, kind, humble, and caring. God bless his soul. I shall continue to champion the cause of actors. We are in bondage here; no good welfare package for the actor, no quality insurance/pension scheme, no health plan, nothing!
